NBA Star Responds After Girl's Plea About His Shoes

Open this

That's something that Riley, a self-proclaimed Warriors fan herself, touched on in her original letter. "I hope you can work with Under Armour to change this because girls want to rock the Curry 5s, too".

Riley, who told Curry she goes to Warriors games with her dad, said they looked online, but the signature shoes were only sold in the boys section.

When 9-year-old Riley Morrison saw that her favorite Steph Curry sneakers were only listed in Under Armour's boys' section, she took matters into her own hands.

Shortly after Curry's letter was posted to Twitter on Thursday, Under Armour's website started including the Curry 5 shoes under the girls' section. The letter was shared on her father's Instagram page.

"Girls play basketball too and it's not any more important for boys than girls", Riley said. She wrote, "I know you support girl athletes because you have two daughters and you host an all girls basketball camp".

I appreciate your concern and have spent the last 2 days talking to Under Armour about how we can fix the issue. "We are correcting this now". He wanted to play, you see him all on the bench and we talked and he's just chomping at the bit to get out there, especially having a matchup like Kyle Lowry, someone he respects, and someone we all respect.

"I want to make sure you can wear my kicks proudly - so I am going to send you a pair of Curry 5's now and you'll be one of the first kids to get the Curry 6".

Curry also invited Riley to come to Oakland for a special event that's in the works for International Women's Day on March 8. He penned a wide-ranging essay in August for The Players' Tribune about what it's like to raise two young daughters under the headline, "This is personal". Considering Curry's history of breaking down in the playoffs it was the right call, even if it was rough on Canadian hoops fans (and to a lesser extent, those broadcasting or watching the game).
